You have a right to move about the world safely. You shouldn’t have to worry about walking somewhere and suddenly getting attacked by a dog.
But in an instant, a poorly trained, poorly restrained, bad tempered dog can change your life.
Severe bites leave you needing expensive medical care, unable to work, and suffering physically—and emotionally—from the shock of such an attack.
You weren’t in a position to protect yourself physically.
But you can protect yourself legally.
Under Ohio law, dog owners can be held strictly liable for dog bites—meaning you can get compensation to help you move forward from this terrifying experience.
Millions of dog bites happen in the United States every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and about 20 percent of people bitten need medical attention.
The Ohio dog bite lawyers at Horenstein, Nicholson & Blumenthal will look out for you and your financial future after this trauma.

Under Ohio law, a dog’s owner or the person keeping or otherwise responsible for the dog is liable for injuries caused by the dog—not just bites, but other injuries, such as those incurred after it knocked you down.
You could have a dog bite case if the following are true:
Strict liability for dog owners means even if they took measures to prevent aggression by their dog, they’re still legally responsible for a bite.
If you were working as a door-to-door salesperson when you were bitten, even if you didn’t have a permit, the dog owner is legally responsible for the bite.
